Course Description

Have you ever wished for more energy ? 

Are you burnout, exhausted and overwhelmed by life's crazy happenings ? 

Imagine living a long, happy and healthy life? Yes Yes Yes !

This course was created to empower people to reset their baseline for body-mind balance. What we need is often simple and yet most of us have never been taught the basics of wellbeing. The content introduces everyday self-care for healthcare. It explores how to make choices with an understanding of our constitutional strengths/weaknesses, It introduces Restorative Yoga practices to rejuvenate and renew our energy. 


Like a car our bodies need servicing, regular fuel top-ups, and ongoing maintenance. As with cars some bodies/vehicles are built for high performance and some are not! We all have unique constitutional strengths, inherited at birth, that influence our health. Nourishing Roots is a self-healing prescription which connects us to what is natural. 

The practices for this course are all Restorative Yoga. This restful style of Yoga, helps rejuvenate the internal organs and rebuild deep energy reserves. Some practices are as simple as lying on our bellies propped with a pillow.
